In 1985, when AS IS first appeared at the Circle Theatre, AIDS was a new moment in time. A pandemic with no cure or reason. AS IS being one of the first plays, and subsequent teleplay, depicting how AIDS was affecting the LGBT Community. Its power was also in that it focused on a small group of friends - and what it did to them. It proceeded Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart by about a month.
